A novel 3D dynamic barcode that can easily and effectively be captured, and decoded utilising inexpensive and mobile camera devices is presented. The primary expectation of the authors’ approach is that users will have the ability to transfer large packets of information without the necessity for customary electromagnetic techniques such as Bluetooth or Wi-Fi. Designing an algorithm that successfully extracts the frames from the recorded dynamic barcode enables the end user to video capture the dynamic barcode, rather than taking multiple snapshots of each barcode frame. The results indicate that the optimum setting for the capturing device is 720p at 30 frames per second with an efficiency of 99% and transmission rate of 622 bytes/s.
